In April 2019, we proudly introduced our new addition to the White Dental Beauty family; a revolutionary CompoSite system to give patients the smile they desire, using affordable and repeatable techniques.
The launch event, named #whiteology, saw internationally-renowned speakers and StyleItaliano members, Professor Louis Hardan, Dr Walter Devoto, Dr Monaldo Saracinelli and Dr Murad Akhundov present to a packed room of enthusiastic delegates about the features and benefits of this new restorative system.
If you missed out on the event, or simply want to know more; here’s the story behind the whitening restorative system that everyone’s talking about:
White Dental Beauty CompoSite
White Dental Beauty CompoSite has been developed to satisfy increasing patient demand for whiter smiles, designed to restore healthy smiles in every day practice. Accredited and educated by StyleItaliano.
It is a dedicated restorative system of modified shades & materials based on over 25 years of experience and research through over 200k members within the StyleItaliano community. Offering a simple, time efficient, predictable treatment which is minimally invasive and affordable.
Traditionally smile makeovers have often been expensive and time consuming, such as porcelain veneers that require multiple visits, lab work and technique sensitive bonding procedures.
The White Dental Beauty CompoSite colour palette comprises of 5 high value shades of white (Si 0, 0.5, 1,2,3) with the optimum graduation in colour to compliment bleached teeth, importantly the introduction of Si0.5 has been developed to bridge the current shade gap between 1 & 0 which is often too wide. The vibrant white smiles patients are seeking can be achieved in a single layer and character can be further enhanced by finishing with a very thin layer of universal enamel (0.5mm) which adds vitality and youth to the restorations with opalescence qualities.
This is an ideal system for direct composite smile makeovers, as well as individual restorations in the anterior and posterior. It works in complete synergy with White Dental Beauty tooth whitening systems, which is recommended as the first step in the smile enhancing treatment offerings.
StyleItaliano brings a unique education approach with #whiteology. Comprising of clinical case studies, video cases, hands-on workshops and online education.
The CompoSite system consists of the following:
- Si0, Si0.5, Si1, Si2 & Si3 – Known as the ‘five shades of white’, these shades are designed for whitening and restorative cases, assisting with the perfect colour match for bleached or naturally white teeth. These multi-functional shades can be used for mono layering in full direct veneer cases, or in conjunction with the Enamel for a two-layer technique.
- SiE – This enamel shade has been designed to blend flawlessly with all the Si universal shades, featuring a calibrated translucency and opalescence properties. It is ideal for a two-layer technique and for simply characterising the incisal edge.
- SiM & SiMP – These two flowable shades each provide different benefits. SiM uses an opaque light resin, instantly camouflaging the shade of the tooth and providing a neutral base for immediate restorative work. SiMP is a multipurpose flowable, which can be used for base/lining, Class 5’s, post and core build-up and to cement veneers or overlays.
- SiP - This posterior composite is homogenous in colour, it has a light scattering- universal opacity and is mimetic with the tooth, allowing this single shade to be the solution for the vast majority of posterior restorations. It has a high filler content of 80% and is designed specifically to work with the Fast Modelling Technique (FMT), carving effortlessly and simplifying occlusal anatomy substantially with ample working time under ambient light. It is wear resistant and is very fast to polish for a quick and simple aesthetic result.
CompoSite has been developed with optimum viscosity, resulting in excellent handling and a non-sticky consistency that is ideal for modelling and shaping. CompoSite also offers high polishability, allowing restorations to become invisible with natural fluorescence and high colour stability resulting in beautiful long-term aesthetics
